What's generally the dumbest thing you've done as a child?

I must have been around 6-7? I saw my mom test the smoke detector by lighting something on fire and waiving it under the smoke detector. As soon as I was alone I figured I'd give it a go. Grabbed some paper towels and turned on the stove, as soon as they caught on fire my mom came back in the house, in pure panic I threw the flaming wad of paper towels and they got stuck between the fridge and counter. My mom had one of those mom-lifting-a-car-to-save-their-baby adrenaline moments and she grabbed the fridge and pulled it away from the wall, breaking the outlet it was plugged into and doused the flames. She didn't wait for my dad to come home to tan my hide.
